Dividend stocks have had a tepid year , to say the least. They've underperformed the stock market as a whole in 2014-a far cry from the days of 2012 when investors flocked to them as a way to get better returns. In the event that dividend stocks have underperformed enough to become attractive again, we decided to see if we could find any that were trading at a discount. So we started off with a universe of over 400 dividend-paying US stocks.

We then screened those companies for stocks trading at a heavy discount to their Graham Number, a figure derived by Benjamin Graham which tries to asses a fair price for a stock based on its earnings and book value: 1. AGCO Corporation (AGCO), 2. Barnes Group Inc. (B), 3. Dean Foods Company (DF), 4. Entravision Communications Corporation (EVC), 5. Federal Signal Corp. (FSS) and 6. MeadWestvaco Corporation (MWV).
